One more thing about Acapulco, the marinas suck. If you are coming in try to get a slip at Marina Acapulco. It looks like it may have floating docks. The other marina, Club De Yates Acapulco, does not have floating docks. You must make adjustments to lines and fenders throughout the day. They have no cleats, instead there are loops of chain embedded in the dock that you tie lines to. Some of the chain is old and corroded, having sharp edges that chew lines incredibly fast. Plus there is a gigantic surge. Never seen anything like it. Our boat was being thrown around constantly It was awful, and on top of that they charged Cabo prices. The best thing to do is anchor out, or find a mooring ball.
The church on Hualtulco's plaza looks nice, but fairly ordinary from across the street. Come closer.......
Lastly some photos from Haultulco...
The arched dark wood front door is covered with carvings.
In her womb is the embryonic Jesus, with his sacred heart fully charged up.
The ceiling on each side of the central vault is a beautiful dark blue studded with stars. At each end are brilliantly colored paintings.
The meaning of the painting above the alter is a mystery to me.
I took a twenty or thirty pictures of the paintings, and feel the every one of them is worth putting in the blog, but I don't think blogspot would be pleased if I did.
The paintings don't strike me as masterpieces or anything close, but in their entirety they speak of incredible vision and commitment.
